‘Gutfeld!’ playfully dominates Colbert and Co. with a little help from Bill Maher!

– Late-night TV hosts lean to the Left with little diversity of thought
– Bill Maher is an exception, willing to criticize liberals and call out the “far-Right”
– Maher’s appearance on “Gutfeld!” boosted ratings, featuring clashes of ideas with a balanced panel and a feisty yet fun exchange of views

Late-night TV is like an echo chamber of leftist views – Colbert, Meyers, Kimmel, Fallon, Oliver, Stewart, and their crew all lean to the Left. It’s like watching “The View” with fewer female hosts. The lack of diversity in thought is glaringly obvious.

But wait, there’s a ray of sunshine in this sea of sameness. Enter Bill Maher, the rebel of late-night TV. He may call out his fellow liberals on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” but he never forgets to remind us that the “far-Right” is the real enemy. It’s this kind of bold, non-conformist attitude that has made “Gutfeld!” a refreshing change in the ratings game.

Greg Gutfeld, the host of “Gutfeld!,” isn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers. He’s right-of-center, rebellious, and not afraid to take jabs at Democrats in his monologues. This week, he proved just how powerful a diverse range of views can be when he invited Maher onto his show to promote his new book, “What This Comedian Said Will Shock You.”

The result? “Gutfeld!” hit its highest ratings in its three-year history. The episode, which aired at its new 10 p.m. time slot, drew in an average of 2.9 million viewers, along with 342,000 in the coveted 25-54 age bracket – trumping the competition in late-night TV.

The episode was no walk in the park, though. Maher sparred with the panel, which included Dr. Drew Pinsky, Kat Timpf, and Dana Perino. Pinsky leans left but has shifted towards the center on recent issues, Timpf is a self-described libertarian, while Perino and Gutfeld hold center-right views. The clashes were fierce but enjoyable, with Maher being a good sport and everyone relishing the clash of differing perspectives.

This wasn’t Maher’s first foray into crossing the aisle. While many liberals steer clear of “Gutfeld!,” Maher has a history of reaching out on both “Real Time with Bill Maher” and “Club Random.” Earlier in the week, he faced off against the hosts on “The View,” taking fire from the Left. He also went head-to-head with Megyn Kelly, struggling to keep up with her mastery of facts.

So why does Maher keep stepping into the lion’s den? Perhaps it’s because he knows the power of diverse discussions and the importance of hearing different viewpoints. In a sea of liberal-leaning late-night hosts, Maher stands out like a sore thumb. And it’s that uniqueness that has made “Gutfeld!” a force to be reckoned with in the ratings game.

So, next time you tune into late-night TV, remember that there’s a rebel in the mix – and his name is Bill Maher. Share this article with your friends and let them know that there’s more to late-night TV than just one-sided banter.
